AFGHAN REFUGEE CRISIS RESPONSE
We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of individuals, groups and organisations in the response to the Afghan appeal. Due to this we have paused accepting any more donations.
If you would like to make a financial contribution to support the Afghan families and other refugees in the county, please use the donate button at the top of the page.
If you would like to keep up to date with the latest news, announcements, and updates on how to help us in supporting Shropshire's refugee community please consider joining our closed FaceBook group.
Thank you for caring so much and reaching out with your generous spirit.
